Glad to hear your nephew is safe but one would hope that a college campus would be a relatively otherwise safe environment - particularly considering it wasn't so long ago that VT went through this same thing.

I sit on the Workforce Investment Board where I live, which is tasked with helping the least employable (vets (why?), elderly, disabled, parolees, etc) get job training and acess to jobs. You can imagine the fun stories I hear out here in California and particularly in the Salinas Valley where the bulk of our clientele is located. Lose a job? Lose health care, lose your home, lose hope...

... and if you have a job, know damn well the employer will squeeze every last bit out of you because you're damn lucky to have a job...

Meanwhile Jon Corzine gets to be a Senator, a state Governor, a CEO, lose ~$1.2 BILLION dollars of someone else's money.

And now he is Obama's Re-election Fundraising committee chair?

Fuck it, I am getting myself worked up - the sooner this shit implodes the better off we all will be.

Wow - I did not know Corzine had such a large role in the Obama's campaign. You would think they would be smart enough to can him - or at least keep him in the shadows pressing flesh. That's stunning.
